Possibly. The description is troubling... It sounds like a scrapbook collection of envelope illustrations more than letters: "These letters are insightful & inspirational, but *more significantly*, the envelopes in which they arrived are brilliantly illustrated & unique... This book collects hundreds of *those envelopes*, as well as a selection of letters..."
Also included: "rare photos" and "special reminiscences." All in 208 pages! So my anticipations for this book are pretty meager... I hope to be pleasantly surprised, though.

Totally agree - not enough meat. The GD memorabilia show 2 years ago at the NY Historical Society had a nice selection of some of these items, and the stuff was cool and interesting, often amazing, a nice series of historical snapshots of the fans, the band and the era... but not worthy of my dollars in book form. I'd rather go see the exhibit or whatever will come to fruition with the Archive in Santa Cruz. My guess is that the proceeds from this book will go to support the archive effort.
